The idea is that since consumers get load balanced, we can scale horizontally in a nearly “unlimited” fashion just by adding new “central” servers, each shoveling from each producer. And it just requires our consumers to connect to multiple queues, which is no big deal. And each server can run a mirrored queue giving us HA, and if any central server fails, only a part of the capacity is affected.

I’d recommend taking a look at federated queues:
